Always on the brink of self-destruction, the Finnish sludge trio Stumm had a painstaking seven-year run of activity between 2003-2010. In addition to the material released on the demo, full length album and two split vinyls, the band had a selection of songs that were only performed in live situations prior to the band eventually ceasing to exist. All unreleased material is presented on this tape, the quality of performances and recordings ranging from horrid to unbearable, but Stumm was never one for entertainment value or good vibrations. Pure pain put into music. Besides the previously unreleased material included are the only two cover songs Stumm ever played live, by Deep Purple and Mayhem, respectively. "Stumm is Dead" presents the final nail in the coffin for one of the early bands in the Finnish sludge scene.
